InterviewWe spoke to Ian Bitterlin, the Chief Technology Officer at Emerson Network Power EMEA, on a range of issues pertaining to the data centre of the future.
Apple has been granted a patent for a dual-sided laptop display that can be powered by solar panels housed within the back of the lid.
Apple files a new solar power patent while, unsurprisingly, Samsung is said to be considering the very same technology.
ExclusiveDespite its impressive alleged battery life, Logitech reckons we'll be relying on the sunshine to keep the new iPad going.
Apple has patented a system for a new technology that is able to provide power to portable devices using energy from the sun.
Over the years, many have accused Google's healthy profits as being little more than the product of smoke and mirrors, so they'll probably be pleased to see the search and advertising giant getting into actually building real mirrors.
Scientists at Purdue University in Indiana have created 'spaser-based nanolasers', spheres 44 nanometers, or billionths of a meter, in diameter.
Construction is underway of PlanetSolar, the first ship that is planned to circumnavigate the globe using solar power alone. The 30-metre ship will carry a permanent crew of two but can accommodate up to 50 for shorter trips.
Unconventional solar cell materials that are as abundant but much less costly than silicon and other semiconductors in use today could substantially reduce the cost of solar photovoltaics, according to a new study from the Energy and Resources Group and the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). These materials, some of which like iron pyrite are highly abundant, could expand the potential for solar cells to become a globally significant source of low-carbon energy, the study authors said.
